Dead Pilots Society: live reads of dead pilots by your favorite actors

On June 23, 2pm, we're thrilled to present dead pilots by Jenji Kohan (Orange Is the New Black; Weeds), Patrick Schumacker & Justin Halpern (Harley Quinn; $#*! My Dad Says), and Caroline Williams (Arrested Development).

Starring: Justin Kirk (Weeds), Yael Grobglas (Jane the Virgin), Ayden Mayeri (New Girl), Nicole Byer (Loosely Exactly Nicole), Kira Kosarin (The Thundermans), Carlos Alazraqui (Reno 911), Phil Lamarr (Futurama); John Gemberling (Broad City); Jason Genao (On My Block); Nathan Anderson (Richie Rich); Lou Wilson (American Vandal); Carrie Wampler (Austin & Ally); Lauren Holt (UCB); Lauren Lindsey Donzis (Liv & Maddie), and even more to be announced!

Every year, hundreds of pilots are bought by television networks. Only a handful of those pilots are produced. There are dozens of terrific, cherished, sweated-over passion projects that have never seen the light of day... until now.

Ben Blacker (co-creator, The Thrilling Adventure Hour) and Andrew Reich (Friends) bring you Dead Pilots Society, in which pilots passed over by the networks finally get their due.

There are no notes, no one gets fired, and everyone has a good time.

Cast announced in this space and @DeadPilotsPod on Twitter!

$15 in advance / $20 at door

S. A. Andrée's Arctic Balloon Expedition of 1897

Baby Geniuses

Hello, babies!

On today's episode, we address some controversies, including those surrounding Emily's Friends tweet. Lisa has a sex dream about a bird. Emily reads a libertarian children's book. On Chunch Chat, Martha Stewart rides her friesian to the farmer's market. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "S. A. Andrée's Arctic Balloon Expedition of 1897." I would suggest not taking a hot air balloon to the North Pole.

The Greatest Generation DS9 Ep 213: A Real Haranguing or Banging Conundrum (DS9 S2E16)


When Dax and Odo find a techno-donut, it’s only the first clue in a very Star Trek mystery. Back on the station, Jake gets his first job and Quark tries to Job Kira while Vedek Bareil tries to get a ‘job. Could Odo Riker an ankylosaur? Why are the Bjorans so willing to give up the jumja? What’s a good ratio of walls to holes? It’s the episode that shucks before it shaves.
